Police say a 25-year-old man has been arrested at the Los Angeles home of Brad Pitt.

Officer Karen Smith says a housekeeper called police around noon Wednesday after she saw a silver car blocking the actor's driveway. She told officers the man, who described himself as a freelance reporter, got out of the car and asked "Which one is Brad Pitt's house?"

Smith says neither Pitt nor Angelina Jolie was home at the time.

The man, identified as Eric Ray Mitchell, was arrested for investigation of trespassing.

Smith says Mitchell was taken into custody on a "private person's arrest" and it will be up to the housekeeper to decide whether or not to press charges.
